Belterra Park Race 5

1M Stakes

Prize Money: AUD $20,795

LIAMS LAD (7) improved sharply on his eighth two starts back at Keeneland (Dirt) with success as public elect over 1609m at this track (Dirt) a week-and-a-half ago, getting home by 0.3 lengths after being in contention on the corner. Ideally placed and is sure to take plenty of stopping. JURA (8) comes here off a break of three-and-a-half months. Worth noting he filled a minor placing when returning from a spell last prep over 1710m at Horseshoe Indianapolis. Yet to win first up but generally runs well with two minor placings from four tries. Rates highly and should take some beating. P K WOOD (2) last appeared eight weeks ago over 1609m at Turfway Park when he finished fifth. This is his first run for the Ismael Bahena stable. Has ability and makes plenty of appeal. GULLANE (10) returns from a layoff of ten months. Scored over 1609m at Mahoning Valley to launch the last campaign. Sure to make his presence felt. Something for the Multiples: FAVORITE HAUNT (4)

1207m - 1710m

Comments
Useful gelding. Most recently tracked the speed and boxed on steadily; won by a 0.3 len at this track May 3 over 1609m defeating Brogue carrying 56kg at $2.60. The run before that eased back early on 8th of 10 at Keeneland on April 11 over 1710m, 28 len behind Welaka with 56.5kg at $20.83. Sure to go well again.
